Trump Wants SNL to Be Canceled Because of This Debate Skit

That question was answered in the cold open of last night's show, with Kate McKinnon honing in on Hillary Clinton's steely awkwardness while Alec Baldwin continues to flawless his scowling Donald Trump impression in what was jokingly described as "the second and worst-ever presidential debate".

This week's "Saturday Night Live" Cold Open was a re-creation of the second presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and it was hilarious.

"Hello and welcome to the second and worst ever presidential debate", Cecily Strong's Martha Raddatz began, before introducing the two candidates: "Republican nominee Donald Trump and - can we say this yet?" Oh, how will I go on with this debate?

On Twitter, Mr Trump described the show as a "hit job".

Trump said Baldwin's "unflattering depiction of himself" on Saturday Night Live was a "conspiracy".

What has noticeably changed is Trump's rhetoric about the media's influence on the "rigged" election, which now seems to include the 40-year-old variety show.

Baldwin's Trump, on the other hand, was mocked as all bombast and nonsense talk. He didn't even have much to say when SNL called his supporters racist multiple times on the same show, for example. "I'm going to blow this whole thing".

Early on in the sketch, Kate McKinnon gets Hillary to perform an awkward "half-lean" pose, as if she were trying - and failing - to do it completely naturally.

Twenty-four days before the election, Trump's ill fame continues to hit the news and polls with experts calling a Trump's economic plan as a "disaster to USA economy" and will cause "prolonged recession", "slower growth, higher unemployment and declining asset values", as cited by Fiscal Times.

Mr Trump hosted SNL last November to protests and controversy. Baldwin's Trump, meanwhile, continued a string of inappropriate remarks about people of color and women.
